Hello to all and thanks for looking.The picture is an old one from years ago,I was fixing a KT 34 for an older ham who could no longer climb.I was first licensed in 1992,basic ,scored over 80% and passed my 5 wpm,after a few weeks of practice I passed my 12 wpm.I have been interested in radio since I was a kid.I come by it naturally as my Dad was a tech for the Western Union in Nfld and when he was working the evening shift I would spend many nights at the cable office learning about the many facets of communication as it was back in the 50's and 60's.It was very interesting to see the old style radio teletype machines banging away,also it was very fascinating to be able see the signal from the transatlantic cables between Europe and North America on an old oscilloscope. After I got my 1st call sign(VE1VLF) had loads of fun on the HF bands with 10 meters being my favourite.I built a home brew 6 element yagi for 10 and was successful in working over 300 DXCC countries.Shortly after a very good friend Doug VE1PZ introduced me to the world of VHF,especially 6 meters so back to building antennas for VHF.While playing on 6 meters I was able to work 72 DXCC countries with 100 watts and a home brew 5 Element yagi,my best DX was V73 Marshall Islands.I find that conditions out here in the West are very different than having that big ocean ground plane to play with back in Nova Scotia.I am looking forward to having some fun on VHF,CW and SSB(not much of a digital person)Once again thanks for stopping by and hope to hear you on CW the original digital mode.Bob VA6PPZ/VE1CZ. P S,still have property back in Nova Scotia so the VE1CZ call still stands.
